Phoebe Steinhoff-Smith of Coastal Cabinet Works

About the Designer: Phoebe really enjoys working with clients to bring their ideas to life. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and her goal is always to create a space that the homeowner is excited about, so they are happy to share it with family and friends. Aesthetics are very important, but a kitchen design is only successful when it is functional. As a designer my goal is always to create a beautiful space that feels effortless.

A Tip from Phoebe: Play with symmetry. A symmetrical layout is the foundation of any good design, but try making a statement with a glass cabinet that is a different size than all the rest, use asymmetry to create focal points.
